Massachusetts State Police Issue Apology for “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” Bumper Sticker, But Not Before Lying About It
Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.
Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.
Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.

Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.

“Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.
UGH IOS 8.
I love my skin!

Can you house train a horse because I want a mini horse-dog.
yes you can, the mini up the street from my barn does therapy work at the hospital and he’s trained to go in a specific bucket or something when he’s indoors i’m thinking like a kiddy pool?
I must learn to do this training. I need a mini horse-dog.
I know someone who’s dog is trained to ring a bell by the door when he needs to go out to potty. Minis are very intelligent and I think you could easily teach one to do that!
Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody. Not shot and kill and left out on the road. They were arrested and given due process. They’re names aren’t leaked. We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials. We’re not even seeing mug shots. We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all. We just know they left the scene of an armed chase alive.
However an UNARMED black kid walking the streets of his neighborhood was shot 6 times by the police.
This is the difference, the racism and the outrage.
Post racial America my ass. #ferguson #racism
Egregious example of white supremacy:
Police officers chase down and apprehend four white dudes with multiple weapons, no one is hurt.
A disabled black man with a knife is shot down from 10 or more feet away because cops felt “threatened.”
